Nose Surgery Q & A

Why should I get nose surgery?

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that improves the appearance of your nose and creates more harmony in your facial features. If your nose is the first thing that others notice about you or the most obvious feature you see when you look in the mirror, you may benefit from rhinoplasty. 

With rhinoplasty, you can improve:

  • Long nose
  • Wide nose
  • Asymmetric nose
  • Wide nostrils
  • Bumpy nose
  • Wide or bulbous tip
  • Drooping tip
  • Overly upturned tip

Refining your nose with rhinoplasty improves the entire look of your face and can create a stronger profile. A rhinoplasty turns back the clock on an aging face by lifting and reshaping a drooping nose. If you have a deviated septum that interferes with breathing, Dr. Lopez can correct that during your rhinoplasty.

How long does it take to recover from rhinoplasty?

After your rhinoplasty, you need someone to drive you home and you should refrain from working, doing household chores, or going to school or the gym for at least one week. At that time, you return to see Dr. Lopez to check on the progress of your healing. Rhinoplasty can take 12 months to see the complete result.

What if I want to maintain my ethnic identity with rhinoplasty?

Each ethnicity has differences in the composition of their skin, cartilage, and nasal bone that affect the outcome of rhinoplasty. Dr. Lopez at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery is trained in ethnic rhinoplasty. He only makes improvements that flatter your facial type and ethnicity and which respects the composition of your skin, bone, and cartilage.
